The Role of a Lawyer | Thai Law Firm

Hiring a Criminal Lawyer in Thailand

A lawyer is a legal representative of clients or a neutral third party, an officer of the legal system and a public citizen having special responsibility for the quality of justice. As the primary service rendered by a Thai law firm is to advise clients about their legal rights and responsibilities in Thailand well as Thailand lawyers represent their clients in civil, criminal or family cases, and other matters in which legal advice and other assistance are sought. A lawyer may perform various functions but what are their important roles is worth to know.

The lawyer advises the client as to how the law would apply to the client’s case

As the law is not an exact science, the advice will include a wide range of possible outcomes if the matter is litigated and a judge has to decide the case. The lawyer will advise the client on the different arguments that can be made for and against the client and assess the probability of success as well as on the best strategy and legal procedure to obtain the desired outcome. The law is also changing as new cases interpret the Family Law Act. Those new cases might result in a change of advice also.

Argue the case at all Levels

If the parties cannot settle the matter then the lawyer will argue the case at all levels – the interim motion, the trial, and the appeal. The lawyer will conduct the appropriate cross examinations and discoveries, prepare the necessary documents and appear at the pre-trial conference.

The lawyer should negotiate on the client’s behalf

In case, if he or she has no lawyer then to obtain a complete settlement of all the issues, your lawyer will negotiate with the opposing lawyer. During the negotiating process the client will be consulted and will be expected to give instructions to the lawyer as to the terms of the settlement that are acceptable to the client.

Provide Good Service

Good service also includes receiving copies of all court documents and important correspondence. Communication of major developments in the case should be made as soon as possible. The prompt and courteous service also must be extended by all the office staff to the client.

To Draft the Appropriate Documents

If the matter settles without commencing court proceedings the lawyer will draft a separation agreement. If court proceedings are needed the lawyer will draft the Petition for Divorce or Statement of Claim and all other documents that are required to commence and continue a court action.

To Be Sensitive

Lawyer must be a good listener and empathize with the client’s problem. The lawyer must be sensitive in asking the client questions the client may be reluctant to talk about. However, the lawyer, although sympathetic to the client’s problem, must be objective about the advice given. The client must remember that the lawyer is still on their side even though the client does not like the advice given.

A lawyer’s job role is to listen to your problem, give you legal advice, discuss your options, take instructions about what you want to do and help you understand how the law applies to your case.
